3. How to develop trust in a relationship?- Erlin Alvarado
Trust isn’t built instantly in a relationship so you will have to be patient. A good way to build trust in a fun way is to have inside jokes that you two only know. Another way is telling eachother things that most people don’t know about you like a pet peeve or a hobby.

A healthy relationship is one that has a lot of trust but if you want your relationship to last long then yes there has to be a lot of trust.

You shouldn’t worry but if you are feeling a bit insecure about it that is okay and it’s totally normal. But you should talk with your partner about how you feel. Learning their history is important but don’t let what happened in the past define them for you it will only make it worse. You should just trust your partner and be happy you are with them now and not worry about those who may have had a history with them in the past.

If you suspect that your partner is cheating on you the best thing you can do is to talk to them about your suspicion. You have to talk to them in a calm manner ready to listen to their response. Getting angry and arguing without listening to what your partner has to say, will not solve anything at all.
